FTP upload does not overwrite
« on: July 03, 2009, 07:26:48 PM »
Hi all,

Im currently not using the FTP upload for the simple reason that the .gif does not overwrite, but simply creates a .tmp file instead. every time it should upload, it creates another temp.

Any Ideas why?
Thanks,
Jonjo

Hi Jonjo Robb

It is likely an issue with the FTP server You are using.
Check with your service provider.

Hi Jono
I had the same problem. It is with your ISP.
My ISP is Zen internet, in order to solve the problem I had to change over to a cpanel type arrangment wich then allows ftp uploads.
The basic system which I had would not allow automated ftp uploads. Why? I dont know.
All I know is that I had to change over my account to a cpanel and now all is well with the world. Just watch something come along and spoil it!

I am having the very same problem - I have been talking (Or should I say e-mailing) my ISP, all they tell me is "everything is fine there end" they say they have uploaded a gif file from explorer and that worked ok. they are not being very helpful i think.  When I get time I will investigate more, the way the webpage is written etc etc.

But for now I am having the same problem, you are not alone.

Cheers

Andy

A few of us are using gofreeserve.com successfully, so if you don't mind changing web-page providers, they're worthy a try - and free.

Just setup an account, and create a folder called something like "shot".  Then setup in Radarbox is straightforward - username/password/host, and folder path of htdocs/shot

Here's mine - http://www.tarbat.gofreeserve.com/radarbox.htm

Thanks Mate

Might give that a go, but would have been nice for it to go to my own site.

Looking with Wireshark, RB appears to do the following:
STOR _200907040738.tmp
RNFR _200907040738.tmp
RNTO RadarBoxScreenShot.gif

So, if the RNTO doesn't work with your ISP, then you'll get all the TMP files.  You'll need to be uploading to a directory that has the correct permisions set for renaming as well.

If you use Wireshark, you should be able to see what error message is returned by your ftp server when the rename fails.

My screenshots directory has the following permissions - rwxr-x--x
And the RadarBoxScreenShot.gif has permissions of rwxr-x---
